Maui Derm for Dermatologists is the premiere, fully accredited CME conference that teaches a cutting-edge blend of medical and cosmetic dermatology advances by a world-class faculty.
Maui Derm Mission Statement
To increase physicians’ knowledge in areas of medical and cosmetic dermatology in order to enable the physicians to provide better care for their patients.
The Dermatology landscape is ever changing. There have been significant advances with regards to the diagnosis, management and treatment of both medical and cosmetic dermatologic conditions. Dermatologists require direction and insight into the proper management of these conditions.
This educational activity is designed for Dermatologists.
As a result of attending Maui Derm for Dermatologists 2017, attendees should be able to:
- Explain the pathogenesis of various dermatological conditions
- Cite the mechanisms of action of drugs and therapies that are commonly prescribed by the dermatologist
- Describe potential adverse effects and resistance issues that may be related to the use of drugs and therapies prescribed by clinicians in dermatology
- Define appropriate outcome measures for the optimal follow-up of patients with dermatologic diseases as well as those receiving surgical and cosmetic procedures
- Assess the data related to emerging therapies for the treatment of a variety of dermatologic diseases
- Recognize the important role of clinician/patient communication
Based upon the evidence-based content delivered at the MauiDerm conference, the educational eNewsletters will cover the various topics delivered from the meeting. These quarterly eNewsletters will be delivered electronically via an “opt-in” process to the dermatology community. The eNewsletters will include key talking points from the presentations, challenging cases including both diagnostic and management issues, embedded videos and podcasts, and downloadable slides. Topics to be included are:
- Pediatric Dermatology
- Cutaneous Oncology and Pigmented Lesions
- Infectious Disease
- New Drugs
- Cutaneous Immunology and Blistering Diseases of the Skin
The Maui Derm Therapeutic Forum is an online forum that discusses hot topics and challenging cases and allows for participants to view pictures and videos that accompany the case studies. Faculty will be available to discuss the cases and viewers will have an opportunity to pose challenging questions to the faculty. All topics and case studies will be based upon the evidence-based medicine discussed at the live meeting. Online forums allow us to assess knowledge gaps and practice patterns and provide a means for future needs assessments.
In order to reach a broader audience with the content from the Maui Derm for Dermatologists meeting, Maui Derm will produce follow-up conference coverage in the Dermatology Times. Dermatology Times is the only clinical newsmagazine that reaches dermatologists exclusively. The combination of timely, high-level reporting and targeted specialty reach of the most active prescribers in skin care enables Dermatology Times to generate higher readership and exposure.
